Galerie Des Modes Papier Puppens!
Galerie Des Modes! Pink Tafetta!
Over the past few years vintage fashion plates, especially Galerie Des Modes fashion plates have been gaining extreme popularity among artist and people with a love for Marie Antoinette, her era, style and life, I am one of those who has gained a passion for these.

A few years ago I was moving stuff around and came across a book I bought at a flea market 15 years ago, it was hard bound and in a cool book case, I had purchased a computer sized box filled with old fairytales, books and paper dolls, along with this book and case for $10. There were about 30 books in there. I was elated. Well I came across the box, after storing it in the attic, when I rummaged through this treasure box I came upon my fave find of all, a Galerie Des Modes book, complete with case from the 1900's and it was in great condition. Its these images, along with others I have acquired, found and been given, even scanning friends prints, which have lead me to a huge collection and can be found on my Marie Fashion Plates CD and some on the Marie Royal Collage CD. Both these CD's were reformatted around Christmas time with loads of great Marie, Marie Style, Rococco, Royalty, Illustrations, Portraits, Images and more on the cds.

Galerie Des Modes Doll!
Last week I was working on my new Papier Puppens and by accident started creating my version of the Galerie Des Modes fashion plates in the form of crepe paper dolls. These dolls aren'r entirely done, I'm adding some more crepe paper and ribbon layers, glitter and pearls, for now here they are in their first stages.

What a fun thing, to buy treasures 15 years ago, then find them on a whim! Love your paper puppens, they are really sweet! Going to check em' out on flickr too! My oldest daughter has really been into paper dolls and faeries lately, I know she'll love these. I think she may have a little something up her sleeve for the soiree too.

So sweet of you to share them.

I almost fell over when I saw it, I also found vintage paper dolls of the Andrew Sisters, Shirley Temple and others. That's the best part, when you can come upon items that you want and forget you had. Boom then the memories come right back.
